Stunning hand blocked sinamay and wool felt hat. The brim of the hat is made from sinamay, it is made from three layers of fabric - chocolate, tobacco, chocolate - so it has a shot effect. This way you introduce a subtle shot of the colour that is used to make the crown of the hat in to the brim which ties the design together.
The trim on the hat is made from tobacco and chocolate felt, that I have plated, and then twisted, to give an interesting decoration around the whole hat. The brim has a slight sweep up to one side, which gives a very flattering uplifting feel.
Having the combination of felt and sinamay, gives it real wear ability. With having a sinamay brim, it makes the hat seem so much lighter, and would look incredibly smart worn to a wedding or the races.
This deign that is in stock is made to fit head measurement of 22 inches.The brim measures 13.5 inches its width, and 15 inches front to back. The crown measure 4.5 inches from where it dips at the centre front to where it meets the brim
It is possible to make it 1 inch larger, or put elastic inside the crown to make it 1inch smaller. This would mean a new hat being made if you wanted it to be either 21 inches or 23 inches. This would then have a 2-3 week delivery.
Your hat will be supplied in a lovely black and white hat box, so you can store it safely, and have a lovely striking box too!
You can have this hat made in a variety of colours. It can all be made all in one colour, or like this design you can have the crown in one colour and the brim in another colour. Felt I am unable to dye, so it can only be made in stock colours, however there are more than 25 colours available: Royal blue, Navy, Camel, Chocolate, Charcoal mix, Black, Bottle Green, Lime, Sky Blue, Emerald, Teal, Yellow, Gold, Orange, Cranberry, Red, Wine, Grey, Dusty Pink, Purple, Magenta, Fuchsia, Off White, Tobacco, Lilac.
To have one made in a specific colour would take 2-3 weeks. If you require this option please get in touch via the 'ask the seller' button to discuss your requirements.Before placing your order you'll need to send a swatch of the fabric you'd like to match, so I can compare it to the stock colours. Equally useful is a button or a detachable strap. If you don't have any spare fabric, we recommend using colour tester cards from the paint department at your local DIY shop. You should be able to find a match there.
